Background Radiation, is folktronic pop. Tim Dwyer and Ludo Maas, both on different sides of the world, collaborate in a Postal Service like fashion through the internet. Moot Point is the ironically named follow-up to their ironically named debut, "False Start". Much like the first EP, these songs, layer acoustic tinkerings and mesh them with slow, electronic rhythm sections. "False Memories Take You By Surprise" is a short instrumental intro as if the opening credits to a film. Themes of film, space, and love come and go over the course of album from the folksy number "Give Me Light" to the ambient pop of "Double Negative". You'll hear lots of different influences in the EP from the almost National sounding "Motion Trees" to the David Sylvain-esque "Need The Constant".

Indietronic/dream pop/art pop collaboration
autumnal sadness and lethargy have overwhelmed our senses and sensations, all seems to be stopped or at least strongly decelerated, the long and warm summer is let behind, and there it is, an old issue being released more than 8 years ago by Ludo Maas (Multi-Panel), and Tim Dwyer (Off Land & Full-Source) on the US-based imprint No Source. Those slowly growing drone-y melodica tinged lead motives being interspersed with pastel acoustic guitar chords and exquisite electronic touches used to churn the listener's mind. Double Negative, and Radiate are enchanting pop songs, indeed, truly enchanting ones. The listener can perceive this 6-notch issue as if a minimized glimpse as a transgressive, self-thrusting catapult to get thrown into a bigger, more flourishing sonic world. Lofty fantasies used to surface after having listened to these relatively miniature developments. Yeah! Yes!
